    I have been working at TheStreet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) Plenty of opportunities to build your own success. No micro-managers and they give you plenty of room to find your own path and build your portfolio. I came from a company whose marketing team had a stand up to begin every day and a meeting to review what you accomplished at the end of the day (never do that). Marketing leadership gives you plenty of direction but you build your own success.

    2) Great pay. My initial salary was in the appropriate salary range and they reward you when your performance merits an increase. I know people who received a raise in their 1st year at the company. This is something a lot of NYC employers could learn to do and I'm glad they reward talent and exceptional performance.

    3) A ton of amazing women in leadership and a lot of talented women in every department. This isn't a new initiative, they have had a diverse team of men and women from the first day I started.

    Cons

    1) Culture
    HR is almost nonexistent when it comes to company culture. The culture needs rejuvenation. There is a lot of opportunities for new blood to come in and create a fun and cohesive unit. They started monthly happy hours in 2017 (started by the CMO-she's great) but there is still a lot more that needs to be done to continue building a better culture.

    2) Tech Resources
    The tech team needs more programmers and talented project managers. Improving functionality of the sites will help grow leads. This will help make sales and marketing jobs easier.

    Advice to Management

    1) Invest in the tech team.
    2) Create company culture groups, sponsored by HR but led by employees.
    3) Continue to reward employees who perform really well.
    4) Do not invest in vendors without complete buy-in from that group.
    5) Maternity leave and Paternity leave could be a lot better. Invest in the young talent at this company and they will reward your investment.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TheStreet.

    Interview

    Met an HR manager, may have been the director, at a job fair. I already had a phone interview with them so we spoke about that. She decided to interview me there instead and said she would pass me onto the next level with an on-site interview. I sent a follow up email, but never heard back. Thought it was kind of lame to say she was absolutely interested, but then didn't even think to shoot me an e-mail saying they were going to go in a different direction. Bad practices for someone who attends university job fairs on behalf of the company.
